There is fungus among us - and it's NOT a bad thing! We interviewed Jeff Chilton and it's clear he's a mushroom genius. He talks about the benefits of mushrooms (Reishi, Lion's Mane, Shiitake, Maitake, Chage, Turkey Tail), how they can boost your immune system, how to correctly incorporate them into your diet, the correct way to cook them, and how they are the ultimate adaptogen!
If you've been curious what all the reave about mushrooms are ... you will love this episode!
Jeff Chilton, raised in the Pacific Northwest, studied ethno-mycology at the University of Washington in the late sixties. In 1973 he started work on a commercial mushroom farm in Olympia, Washington.
During the next 10 years he became the production manager, responsible for the cultivation of over 2 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms per year. He was also involved in the research and development of Shiitake, Oyster and Enoki mushrooms, which resulted in the earliest U.S. sales of fresh Shiitake in 1978.
Jeff is a founding member of the World Society for Mushroom Biology and Mushroom Products in 1994 and a Member of the International Society for Mushroom Science, Mr. Chilton’s company was the first to offer a complete line of Certified Organic mushroom extracts to the US nutritional supplement industry. Nammex extracts are used by many supplement companies and are noted for their high quality based on scientific analysis of the active compounds.
